Tournaments, 18 October

The Champions of Rowany, Jean-Christophe le Saussier and Jude of Lunihawke do invite all armoured combatants, fencers and combat archers to display their prowess and chivalry at a day of tournaments on October 18th 2015 at St Peters Public School, St Peters.

Please bring some food to share (pot luck lunch).

Bookings NOT required.

Site opens at 10:30. Inspections start at 11.

Please be aware, an existing standing booking will be sharing the site with us during the morning (dog obedience class)

Entry is free, however there will be a collection tin if you wish to donate a gold coin.

Non-member $5 levy applies.

Tournament formats:

Rapier: Mixed team melee scenarios

Armoured: Poker tournament: A reverse, timed, “King of the Hill”. Victorious fighter departs the field and collects a card, up to a maximum of 5 cards in a hand at any one time. After 3 consecutive losses, the fighter will cede the field.

Best poker hand wins! (results will also be tallied with a separate prize for the fighter with the most victories).

Depending on numbers, 2 fields may run at the same time.

Combat archery: round robin, best of 3 final. Again, dependent upon numbers, multiple bouts may occur simultaneously
